COMMENTS & QUESTIONS
The instructor did an excellent job explaining her process and my initial drawing proportions were better than usual for me. I will try her techniques on other drawings.

I thoroughly recommend Annette’s informal courses. Great for beginners like me. I took art at school but that’s where it stopped. Thanks for the encouragement Annette

Thank you for sharing your talent and encouraging others. Looking forward to more classes next year.

Thank you again for making my holiday so interesting.
Eileen B. - October 2019
I enjoyed it very much. I am familiar with Annette’s teaching style and so I was able to sketch along, but I think that would be possible if not familiar. The follow-up video allows another attempt at the learner’s pace and also further practice.
Etchr Mini Workshop - November 2021
I enjoyed my holiday near Beziers very much.
Annette is an excellent teacher, supportive and attentive to each student’s needs.
I produced better pictures than I had anticipated but my holiday was absolutely crucial for me in deciding the direction in which I wanted my art to go. I shall always be very grateful to Annette for that.

I had a wonderful week sketching with Annette last year. As a newcomer to sketching she gave me huge confidence and invaluable help and encouragement when needed. I know the others would agree with me. I have become a very active sketcher thanks to Annette and have wonderful memories of long lunches, lots of laughs and of exploring her corner of France.

I attended a Paris weekend earlier this year with Annette Morris Art. It was fantastic, we really explored Paris and captured lots of memories in our sketching. Highly recommended!

Enjoyed a great 4 day sketching holiday with Annette in Quarante, France. Excellent tuition with useful exercises and tips. I think I became a little more colourful!! Annette is very organised, inspirational and enthusiastic. The bed and breakfast accommodation with Annika was “palatial” but so relaxed and comfortable that it was like staying with an old friend. I would recommend this holiday to all sketchers. Kaye

Thank you for stretching us, Annette. A completely new style (Faux Stained Glass) for me. What a wonderful day.

Thank you very much for the class on Tuesday. We were very impressed with the amount of things we were able to learn from you in such a short time.

Great sketching workshop in Capestang – learned some interesting techniques for future projects. Thank you, Annette! 😃
Patricia - October 2021
I’m a novice, and have been to some of Annette’s classes recently. She’s a kind and patient teacher. If you want to try sketching in a supportive space, I can recommend Annette’s sessions.
Celia B. - February 2020
I greatly enjoyed the relaxed workshop in Carcassonne with Annette this morning. I learned a lot and I’m re-inspired to do some sketching. Thank you!
Frances M. - January 2020
This was a great workshop by one of my favourite watercolour artists. The pace was fast (although I do appreciate the time restraints) and I was able to follow along for most of it and then complete any finishing touches afterwards. The PDF was a welcome addition as a step by step guide too.
Etchr Mini-Workshop - November 2021
My wife Heather started zoom sketching classes with Annette Morris of Sketch Languedoc during the lockdowns in the UK. She was thrilled with how quickly Annette’s teaching yielded results. However, nothing is as much fun as being outside in the fresh air in a beautiful Covid safe setting. If you are in the area, don’t miss her brilliant workshops or sign up for her Zoom classes online.
